Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reveal new names for both their children


They’re making a new start

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly given their children new names.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have redefined their identities in recent years since they stepped back from being senior members of the Royal Family back in 2020.

Since then, the couple have made waves with their moves, including a Netflix documentary and their Archewell foundation.

However, one change that fans of the pair did not see coming was their changing of Lillibet and Archie’s names.

Their children, who were formally known as Prince Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Princess Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, are reportedly now to be known by something different.

A source told The Times that Harry and Meghan’s children are now to be known as Archie and Lilibet Sussex instead.

This marks a move away from Royal tradition, which has set precedent for heirs of Queen Elizabeth to have Mountbatten-Windsor as their surname.

It comes after Harry and Meghan rebranded their Archewell website to The site omits any use of the word ‘royal’, despite the ‘Sussex’ originating from their royal roots.
